About the Movie

Cameron Diaz and Ewan McGregor are star-crossed lovebirds on the lam in this twisted romantic comedy from the creators of Trainspotting. Celine (Diaz) is a spoiled, rich young woman whose worst nightmare is having her credit card rejected. Robert (McGregor) is a hapless janitor whose greatest dream is to write the Great American Trash Novel. They have nothing in common, except the burning desire to live "a life less ordinary." When Celine is kidnapped by the inept Robert, a pair of celestial cops are dispatched to earth to make sure they live that "life less ordinary" together. Co-starring Oscar -winner Holly Hunter and Delroy Lindo.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Flippantly hip without any solid laughs, Life strains to be the flick more offbeat. – Susan Wloszczyna, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Never gets old!

I could watch this movie over and over again. There is just so much to it: Ewan, Cameron, the singing, the violence, the music, everything. Definately worth a shot, and a purchase.


sorry "knowitalls", but it seems you dont know it all. but in reality this movie is exciting in everyway, and is a fine buy. The music is awesome, and ewan and cameron DO have chemistry. so if you are looking for romance, adventure, comedy, look no further.

I Love It!

I don't know what's with these bad reviews but I love Ewan McGregor (especially in The Island) and A Life Less Ordinary is a great movie. My whole family watched it and it kept our attention and we laughed.
